This example requires a HTTP client. There are many availble, some
examples are wget, curl and snarf. Using curl you would do this:

ssh server_host "curl"

This effectively executes the curl command on server_host, so curl
will need to be installed there.

You can run any application or script over the network this way and
there is full duplex communication.
